L’en-Cas Bio is a casual place where you grab cold beverages from a case, put them on a tray, order food at counter and pay, sit down, and they bring you your food. A restaurant with organic vegetarian and gluten-free options sounded great in theory, but my actual experience disappointed. The food tasted good, but poorly trained staff made me... More

Highly recommended cafe with fresh, organic food. We tried the gluten free "cakes" which are savoury breads. Warm and toasted, they were served with a fresh salad or soup (carrot & ginger). We also enjoyed the gluten free falafel with creme fraiche and hummus. Great service, (they also speak English) lovely spot by the canal. Highly recommended.

Great lunch time spot, serving organic foods and drinks in a beautiful location in the centre of town. I tried the vegan/ gluten free option (Assiette végétalien), it was a big salad, hummus, rice cakes, spicy vegetable balls, and the soup of the day. It was very filling and fresh and I will be taking other friends there soon.

I was looking for a place to eat my early dinner at 5pm, something light and tasty as it was so hot here. This was perfect. The warn goat cheese salad was full of great fresh vegetables like peppers, carrots, salad, tomatoes, goat cheese on toast, with a tasty dressing. I finished the entire generous plate it was that good!... More

This is my 3rd trip to Annecy & I always make this restaurant my most visited for lunch. I am vegetarian & try to eat organic when I can, now I can do both at L'en cas Bio. The owner is very friendly which gives the restaurant a warm inviting atmosphere! I'm happy that others can enjoy L'en Cas Bio... More

My wife and I came across this place whilst wandering around Annecy in June. They were closing in half an hour, so we had a quick drink and a piece of cake. It was delicious - we told them we'd be back for a meal. The day before the end of the holiday, we made a special trip into Annecy... More

I had seen reviews of this cafe on tripadvisor and was hoping to find it. Imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon it right behind our hotel! My French is very limited and the person who took my order had limited English, but I managed to order delicious vegetarian food which doesn't seem too easy to do in France. When... More

Other than the cafe being tricky to find, the service and coffee were great. The servers where very nice and answered all questions. The vibe inside the cafe is nice and they have outside seating for when the weather is warm and sunny. Prices are similar to most cafes and very reasonable especially since it is Organic. We plan to... More

For a vegetarian traveller, this cafe was like a safe haven for my fiancé and I. The cafe is warm and inviting and the staff very accommodating despite our very limited and (I imagine) frustratingly bad french. The vegetarian options are not plentiful but are definitely adequate! Choose the 'Assiette Vegetarienne' where you will receive their plate-of-the-day. They also have... More
